I lit* Council Bluffs XonjHirt-il ex
presses about tbe view of any man of
ordinary honesty and decency when
it says : “ When political tricksters
shamelessly announce their purpose
to bring apout the fusion of the dem
ocratic and greenback tickets by
means of baiter and trade, selling out
anti turning over voters.as so man}'
dumb auhnals, it is high time for the
honest principle-loving, self respecting

The Jlateleeyt says: Will the work
ing man be deceived ? The cry
for cheap money is the cry of the
speculator who fattens off the
necessities of the laboring classes.
It is a cry for higher prices for every
thing the poor man needs. It means
that bread shall cost more, boots nr:d
shoes shall cost more, renis .-.hall I •
higher and homes dearer. Docs tho
poor man want that?
What is a greenback? The United
Stales Supreme Court has rendered a
definition as follows:
‘‘.lt is clear that these notes are obliga
tions of the l ailed Htales. Their imuic
impor's obligation, and every one of them
htar* on its fact a prom ite to pay a certain
sum. Ihe dollar note is a promise to pay a
dollar, and the dollar intended is the coin
dollar of Ute Flitted Hls'es; a certain
weight and fineness of gold and silver.”
Every grcenbwoker should have the
above panted in hit; hat.
There was an election in 1S(»0. It
resulted in the thfiee of Abraham
Lincoln for president. One section
of the country refused to accept the
decision of the ballot box. They re
belled. They had already robbed
the government of its money and its
appliances of defense. They formed
a new government. They insulted
the true gov< rniuent. They fired on
is d.ig and its defenders. They de
clared their purpose to destroy the
government from whichthey seceded,
riu v sent armies to destroy il* capi
tal city. War, horrible war—a war
between brothers was declared. Out
fathers suits, brothers, and friends
were called to their country’s defense.
The land trembled with the shock of
contending armies. Hundreds of
thousands of brave men met death.
Their death was that of patriotic de
fenders of their nation. Time flies.
The war ends. Truth had been tri
umphant —right justified. Peace and
quiet was sought. Our bravo boys
returned home, except alas! Wo
cherished no enmity toward our con
<iuered foe. We forgave them. We
took them into the national family
again. We asked no repentance.
We cxai-ted no pledges. We sought
no reimbursement for the damage
done u>. We had expended untold
millions. We were imp verished
from the long struggle. Vet we fan
cied ourselves rich, Rejoicing over
victory we forgot the cost. The
years roll on. We treat our late en
emies as brothers: We seat them at
the family table. They have a place
under the same roof. Tiiev have a
voice in otir counsels. They who
were Hi os t biller against us are again
dissatisfied. We labor for the general
good. We seek to restore the former
condition of the family. They plan
for more power. They plot together
for more destruction. They counsel
st rrctly for our humiliation, The
\ ears roll on. We have toiled. They
have planned. We tat her again in
ge.ieral counsel. We find ourselves
in the minority. While we worked
they plotted. They forget we were
tlie victors. We remembered they
were the conquered. We recall their
attempt to destroy. We have learn
ed their perfidy. We find our confi
dences betrayed and derided. Our
magnanimity is laughed to scorn.
I’hey t II us they are the masters, we
the followers. They justifiy their
course. They denounce our ac
tions. I’hey tell us we were wrong.
They tell us they have suffered, and
that wc must pay their losses. Their
demands are exorbitant. We can
never concede them.
Time passes. Again an election is
before ns. 1 n many eases it is -imilar
to the first. We are threatened. We
are denounced. Wc are told we must
yield. Shall we? The result of de
feat will be serious. If successful we
may resist the encroachments of those
who would entrap it-. If we lose we
!<»m* much that we struggled for years
to obtain. Our voice must still be
heard in the counsel. We must not
permit out enemies to conquer. Time
files. Ihe result will soon be known.
Let every patriot do his whole duty.
Gen. Weaver in the joint discussion
litre said “he was 21 years in the Reimb
“liean party; that he had a right to
“leave; the old man didn’t treat him
“right and he left. Of course he had a
right to leave, no one disputes that; hut
let us see how the “old uian ’ treated
him. He made him a General in his
army, and when he cauie home the “old
man" gave him a fat office. That was
not enough for Jim's ambition so the
"old man' gave him another offi<*>»—t he
two worth SIIOOO a year. This even was
not enough for .fiui, who tried to get
another office while holding on to the
two already given him, but the “old man”
thought he had enough. After seven
years had passed aud Jim had made
$42,000 out of the “old man,” he said:
“Jim, I think it’s about time some of
“the other boys had ;• chance, and now
“that your e2l years old, I guess you
are able to shift for yourself. This
didn't suit Jim. lie wanted all or none.
He didn’t think the other hoys hud
done anything worth while, and would
not let go. hut the “oi l man" said, “it’s no
use, Jim, you will have to step nut and
let some of the other boys in. At this
Jim got mad, and threatened to leave, but
concluded better ol it for a while. After
trying two or more times, however, with
out making the “old man” come down Jim
got mad and did leave home, and now he
is abusing the “old man” because lie
would not give him the whole farm and
throw in the stock.

Hon. James G. Blaine —My Dxtr
Sir: Please to remember our talk in
the Senate chamber last winter when
1 urged that the Republican party
should meet the wishes of the peo
ple, the necessities of business, :o.d
the conviction of a large portion of
the thoughtful men of the nation.
If your party had offered a plan
for the government's issuing of ail
the paper note currency (a doctrine
to which the best European thought
is hastening, if it has not already
reached) the same to he legal
tender everywhere, and for every
purpose and interconvertible with
bonds for a long term and at a low
rate of interest, the principal and
interest of which should be payable
in coin, that would have saved us
from the Bourbon South in 1880
What I hear from Republican bu-u
ness men convince mo that it’ they
could have been countenanced in
such a platform by trusted leaders,
such leaders would have carried the
country. Ido not say that such a
financial plan would have wholly .-at
isfied me, but it would have held the
It is sad to see a party that has
led the world in advanced yet eon
servative opinion, «juit its place and
fall behind the best financial thought
of Europe, clinging to obsolete if not
exploded theories, losing the helm in
defense of ideas that ten years hence
men will smile al. One great con
cern with me is that tints they insure
Southern Bourbon rule for the next
dozen years.
Wealth here is almost omnipotent,
and its organization is very perfect,
but you’ll see that, once awake, the
masses will smash tings, journals and
parties, and that neither wealth nor
the seaboard rules this people.
Yours truly, Wkndf.ll Riullibs.*
Mr. Blaine’s reply is summarized
as follows:
1. If the hoi di bore interest high
enough to float the currency at par
with coin, the currency w ould i tin
into the bonds, and there would be a
scarcity of notes, a stringency in the
money market, and a general inMa
bility in affairs.
2. If the bond bore a low rate of
interest it would be worth levs than
c-oin, and the currency, which would
be wotth no more than the bond,
would be depreciated.
3. It would encourage unhealthy
speculation, by opening the way for
locking up greenbacks to force sit-in
geney in the money market. Thus
government would be an accomplice
in every gambling scheme devised
in Wall street against the peace and
prosperity of the country.
4. The largo amount of currency
that lies idle three or four months
every summer would be invested in
the bonds and the government forced
to pass interest on money fir which
i would have no use.
5. The interconvertible bond
would lead to postponement of small
bills and debts. “Once teach every
man who has a surplus of ready
money that he can deposit it with the
government and draw interest there
on, and the inevitable tend, ney is to
place it there and to keep it there as
long as a creditor can he denied,
avoided or evaded. The advantage
in all branches of trade and labor of
promptly paying small bills, not
drawing interest, is incalculable.
The interconvertible hood would
stop this at once, and would array
the avarice and cupidity ol the mon
eyed class against it.
0. The plan would make the gov
ernment the constant repository for
the surplus money of the rich, who
would use it as the resting place for
fortunes, waiting a more permanent
and profitable investment. It would
incur the general odium of taxing the
many for the benefit of the few, of
exacting from the poor a contribu
tion to pay interest on the rich man’s
mono}’ at a time when the govern
ment did not need it and could not
use it.”
He closes as follows:
You express the belie!''that the pol
icy of the Republican party on this
question “will insure Southern Bour
bon rule for the next dozen years.”
That of course belongs to the future,
and each of us may indulge his hopes
and his fears, his apprehensions and
his speculations concerning it. But
did it ever occur to you that your
own financial theories arc precisely
those which the Southern Bourbons
arc advancing with zeal, and almost
with unntnily? The Southern Dem
ocrats who are resisting the demand
lor irredeemable money may be count
ed on your fingers, while its advo
cates are as the sands on the seashore.
Among the many evils to be feared
from the Southern Bourbons coining
into power, not the least would be
the triumph of these identical here
sies in finance to which you are lend
ing the great weight of yoir
respected name.
There are thousands of millions
of property in the Northern Slates
dependent for its value upon the
maintenance oi public credit and the
assurance of a sound currency. This
is not the property of the rich mere
ly’, but of all classes; ot every man
who ha- a deposit in the savings
bank; of every man who owns a
State, municipal or railway security;
of every man who has a policy ol
insurance on his house or his ship,
or his life; of every widow or orphan
whose broad is derived from trust
fund.-: of every pensioner whoso fuel
and whose food depend on the month
ly stipend paid him for service and
suffering in the war. For all these
classes and others that I might
enumerate, scattered in the Northern
States from Maine to California, tl •
Southern bourbons are not the ap
pointed guardians nor the natural
protectors. But it becomes alarming
when we see their efforts aided and
abetted by your weighty and elo
quent words, by your great and ven
erated name.
In all great strugles in the political
world issues become generalized, and
details arc left out of sight. So it will
be with this financial question. There
can be but two sides to it: one lor'‘hon
est money,” tbe other for “wild infla
tion;” one for maintaining the faith
aid honor of the nation, the oth r lead
ing to the verge, arid possibly leap
ing over the precipice of repudiation ;
tho one composed mainly of those
who stood by the government in the
hour of its trial, the other deriving its
chief strength from those who sought
to destroy the union of the States. In
the party for honest money there will
in tho end be many Democrats; and I
am sorry to admit that irredeemable
paper has found some < f its ablest
advocates in the ranks of the Republi
can parly. I am, with great respect,
yours very sincerely,
Den. Weaver is getting such scor
ings from Judge Sampson in their

the Ottumwa Courier tells it;
“Judge Sampson, in his half hour's
reply, replied with telling effect to as
many of Weaver's fallacies ;m time
would permit. So telling was Samp
son’s brief reply that Weaver could
not reai.-t his desire to do so ungentle

Infantry, was a graduate of the Military
Academy in 1849, a native of Alabama,
and about fifty years of age. He was
looked upon as one <d the best <>Hi cis in

One of the common errors of the <«reen
back men is the assertion that the National
banks derive a large profit from the loss
and destruction of their notes. The hank
do not get, never have gotten, and under
existing laws, n< v< r can get the Lem fit of
the wastage. The law requires every batik
that goes into liquidation, whether by its
own voluntary net or by failure, to redeem
in legal tendersall the circulation that lias
been issued to it. If the notes have been
destroyed or 10-t, they, nevertheless, are
considered by the oflitmrs of the Govern
ment whose duty it is to eon-true and ex
ecute ti e law as outstanding. Legal ten
ders have to pc deposited by the hanks
with Comptroller of the Currency for the
redemption of every dollar of their cir
culation, irrespective of the amount that
have l een lost or destroyed. Nor is the
percentage of loss sis great as the ‘-Nation
al.s ” claim, some of whom in.-i-t that the
wastage in twenty five years would equal
one quarter of the circulation. The loss,
however, whatever it is, inure* to Ihr hr a
tit of the Government, and not of that of
the b inks. The Government most cer
tainly gains by the loss of the National
bank notes. This is a fact at which the
banks themselves make great complaints.
The only way in which a National bank
can wind up its affairs is by the deposit
with the Treasurer of the United States,
in the Treasury of the United States at
Washington, of legal tender notes equal
in amount to its circulation as shown to be
outstanding by the books of the Comp
troller of the Currency. This is done
under See. 5,222, Revised Statutes.
The Government gains from the further
facts that the banks must deposit tlie full

• Talking with an intelligent farmer,
says the Boone /iejmblican, the other
day, about hard times, he remarked that
during the war he sold his wheat for $2
per bushel. “But,” said lie, “i had to
pay fifty cents per yard for calico for ;t
dress for my wife, and it took three bush
els of wheat to buy twelve yards—enough
for a dress. Now wheat is sixty cents a
bushel, but calico, just as good, and even
better than we had during the war, can
be bought for five cents a yard, or twelve
yards for the price of a bushel of wheat.
In other words, we can buy just as much
calico now for one bushel of wheat as
would have cost us three bushels during
the var, and everything else in the same

stuto Register.
11 seems that the consolid atiou or fus
ion of the grcenbackers and Democrats is
uo fusion or consolidation a*, all. For
the State organ of the greenback party
in Des Moines—whose editor, as the
Chairman of the Greenback State Com
mittee, negotiated the terms of fusion
or surrender, and received Ed
Campbell's cutlass and side arms —treats
the whole thing as a fair and square sur
render of the lowa Democracy to the
greenback party. It calls the new party
aud the substituted ticket by the n: me
of greenback, and patronizingly talks ol
the patriotism un i self sacrifice of the
Democrats in giving up the field, and al
lowing themselves to bo swallowed up by
the grcenbackers.

The Republican party of lowa in Slate Con
vention assembled, declare:
I. The United States of America is a nation
—not a leayuc. By tlie com Lined workings of
the National and State Governments, under
their respective constitutions, the rights of ev
ery citizen should be secured at home and pro
tected abroad, and the common welfare promo
ted. Anj- failure on the part of either the Na
tional or State Governments to use- every possi
ble constitutional power to afford ample protec
tion to their citizens, both at home and abroad,
is a criminal neglect <*f t heir highest obligation.
11. Against tnoassHultsof traitors and icbcls
the Republican party has preserved theseUov
ermnents, and they represent tlie great truths
spoken to the world by the Declaration of Inde
pendence, that “all men are created equal;”
that they “are endowed "by their Creator with
certain inalienable rights, among which are life,
liberty, aud the pursuit of happiness; that for
the attainment of these ends government!* have
been instituted among men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed,”
w hich consent is evidenced bv a majority of the
lawful sufl'ruges of the citizens, determined in
pursuance ot law; and in order that this end
may be Justly and fully reached, the Republican
party of iowa demands “tliat every qualified
elector in every state. South ami North, Demo
crat or Republican, black or white, shall be per
mitted, undisturbed by force and unawed by
fear, to vote at all dictions at tlie place pre
scribed by law. and nowhere else, just onoe and
no more than once; and that every vote so cast
shall be honestly counted, and that every per
son chosen by such votes to any office shall be
freely inducted into it.” and effectively support
ed in the discharge of its duties; and every well
informed person knows that with such freedom
of elective action and honest administration as
arc herein demanded, ut least live of the South
ern States are Republican bv large majorities,
and that they are now in the hands of the Dem
ocratic party solely through force, fraud, intim
idatlo'i amt failure to enforce the principles
herein set forth.
KHI. lVrmanent pacification of the Southern
sect! ;n of the Union and complete protection ot
all its citizens in all their civil, political, person
al and property rights is a duty to which the Re
publican party standi sacredly pledged, in or
der to redeem this pledge it placed recent
amendments in the Constitution of the United
states, and upon the righteous basis ol said
amendments, it will go lorward in'the work ot
pacification until peace shall come through
right doing and contentment through justice.
IV. The new Democratic dogma of home
rule, which seeks to shut out from participation
in the political affairs of the Southern states,
all citizens who oppose the Democratic party,
aud are not natives of said States, and in obedi
ence to the spirit of which every man from the
North of Republican sentiments is termed a car
pet-bagger, is hereby denounced as the worst
phase of State rights yet developed, and we de
mand for tho people of lowa absolute freedom
to go wherever they may please, within the lim
its of the nation, with the perfect enjoyment ol
their rights as citizens, to utter their sentiments
by speech or press uimhi all subjects touching
their interests and all matters of public con
V. The annual conflict between the traitors
and rebels who sought to destroy the Republic,
and the patriots who defended it and preserved
it. was more than a mere trial of physical force
between Greeks. It was a struggle of right
against wrong; of a true civilization against a
false one; of good government against anarchy;
of patriots against traitors, v. herein the Repub
lican party was the defender of the right, the
champion of a true civilization, the promoter of
good government, audio whose ranks the patri
ots marched against and overcome the traitors,
ami whoever fails to regard the Republican par
ty from tins standpoint and in ihislight. tails to
comprehend its character, its achievements, its
purposes and its duties, and whoevertrentswith
the Democratic party from any other stand
point, manifests incapacity to understand palpa
ble facts, and will be overwhelmed with disaster
That the soldiers who fought Hie battles of t lie
Republic are entitled (o special credit fnrtlie he
roism which they displayed; for the hardships
which they endured; for their tinsel,ish devo
tion to liberty amt order, and for the gn at fad
that the war turned out as ft did. and discredit
in a like degree attaches to the traitors ami reb
els who fought to destroy the nation. \Vli<>t ver
fails to appreciate these facts is derelict in the
duly lie owes to the Republican party.
VIII. That the wisdom of the financial policy
ol' the Republican party is made manifest by it's
results. It has brought specie and paper practi
cally together months before the date fixed by
law for the resumption of specie payment by the
Government, it has given to all classes money
of the same value. It has placed our nation oil
an equal looting with the other great nations of
the world, in uli matters cl financial concern
It lias promoted the ref unding of the National
debt at a low rate of interest, it has maintained
the national credit, and any change in this poli
cy will tend to obstruct it in its work of restoring
specie payments, whereby paper currency be
comes absolutely as valuable as gold; and silver
as a standard coin; of reviving business, pro
moting industry and maintaining the public
credit, is hereby denounced as wholly evil and
injurious to the liest interests of the country.
IX. The organized raid on the treasury by
Southern Democratic members of Congress’ lor
the payment of hundreds of millions of dollars
of war claims is an unparalleled impudence, and
a present danger agalnsi the Miceess ol which
the triumph of the Hepublieau party is our only

XI. Jn the matter i f faithfuladminiftraiioti
of the public funds the Republican party chal
lenges the closest scrutiny and invites compari
son with any and all other agencies in public or
private affairs. Notwithstanding vast sums,
amounting to thousands ol millions of dollars
collected and disbursed by the Republican Ad
ministrations. i he per centage of loss is lc-gthan
can ire shown hy any other political party that
has ever been entrusted with the control of pub
lic affairs, or by individuals in their own private
business, thus showing that the charge ol cor
ruption made against the Republican pari v is as
groundlessly impudent as was the effort of the
Southern Democracy to destroy the I nion wan
tonly wicked and atrociously cruel.
XII. The title to the current Presidential
term was definitely and finally settled t>v the
Forty-fourth Congress and any attempt to ic
openitis dangerous, illegal and unconstitu
tional, and the Republican party of lowa w ill
resist all efforts not founded on the Constitu
tion and existing laws to displace the present
possessor of said title: and it is u source of sin
cere congratulation that the firm attitudeas
sumed by the Republican party of the country
in tliis regard forced the majority of the Demo
cratic members of the House of Kcpresenla
tives to disavow the real purpose of the so-called
Potter Investigation.
XIII. That the efforts of the Democratic par
ty to cripple and render inefficient tliearmyaml
navy of the United States is most earnestly
condemned, and all efforts looking to the re
cent reduction of the same, with the view of
future reorganization, whereby the official rela
tions may be in the whole or part supplied by
officers who engaged in the rebellion against
the nation, who hold to the doctrine of seces
sion and who acknowledge primary allegiance
to a State, are hereby denounced as dangerous
to the peace ol‘ the country and permanence of
the Union.

ty of all good citizens at the party caucuses in

we disapprove of all interference with peacea

XV. That personal temperance isa most com
mendable virtue in a people, and the practical,
popular movement now active throughout the
State for the promotion of temperance has our
profound respect, sympathy and approval.
XVI. That we demand the most rigid econo
my in all departments of the public service, and
rigid retrenchment in all public expenses in all
possible directions,and reduction of taxation to
the lowest limits consistent with efficient public
service. In the direction of such economy ami
retrenchment we heartily accord with and com
mend the action oi the last Uepublicati legisla
ture in reducing t lie expenses of the State in
tlie sunt of SIOO,OOO, and this example set by the
State should be followed in all other depart
ments of the Government.
XVII. That the Republican party ol lowa
demands an honest, faithful, careful and effi
cient discharge of duty by all officers, whethet
federal. State, county, or municipal, aod re
quires u full, fair, impartial and searching in
vestigation into the official conduct and the
business of all officers, without regard to party
